had to be named steve to be on the panel today for the most part. steven water from russell investments, steve sacks. steve liesman is with us. and then there's that guy santelli who joins us daily as well. dr. wood, are we making too much of this? over the weekend we were all convinced that the markets were going to be slammed today. they were in asia overnight. then things allayed. what happened? >> i think the market's assessing the size versus what it represents. what we have in cyprus right now is the rule of law being brought into question. can rules about depository insurance change over the course of a weekend? i think the size of cyprus right now, what it represents directly is not a threat. we're assessing. but if this is contained in some broader bailout oriented scheme, i think it could be something weathered by the markets. that said, the rule of law being brought into question is not a good thing. >> steve sacks, are you seeing a reaction in some of the european etfs out there? or are you seeing the same kind of money mentality going into exchange traded funds?
bernanke speaking today. our steve liesman says you might want to listen to what another person from the fed is saying. steve, what's that all about? >> sue, i want to talk in just a second about new york fed president bill dudley, talk more directly about monetary policy. first a word on fed chairman ben bernanke. he's speaking in london with mevvin king, outgoing head of the monetary policy committee there. he broadly supported all the global monetary policy easing for central banks around the world, say k effectively it was not currency. here's what he said. >> because stronger growth in each economy -- these policies are not -- rather they are positive sum enrich thiy neighbr actions. >> what he's saying is what japan is doing is okay. new york fed president bill dudley, he had some very strong words for critics of the federal reserve who say that the fed is potentially going to be losing money through its current quantitative easing policy. let's give a listen to his comments today at the new york economic club. >> the fed is a central bank, not an asset management company. our
york stock exchange. steve liesman is at the bernanke conference in the room there. is that it? that's all the people we could bring in here? mark, you've been sitting here with us. what did you make of what you heard today and the market response? >> i thought narcotmarket respos very good, bill. and i commend the committee. i think they're doing a phenomenal job at this point in time, really. investor sentiment is rising. as long as unemployment remains above 6.5%, i think the fed will do everything to provide accommodative policy. their mandate is to get the unemployment rate below 6.5%, and i think investors, overall, at least my clients and i sense that of other clients, they're feeling really good about the risk assets right now, versus, you know, what might be going on in the economy. >> right. but i guess, kenny palkari, you've been watching the story from the floor there. what kind of flow did you see as bernanke was talking? is there any feeling that anything changes for the foreseeable future? >> no, there is not. and you know, we've actually been talking about this for a
